Have your say on refinements to the design of the Lower Thames Crossing

Design refinement consultation

14 July 2020

(Consultation now closed)

The consultation ran from 14 July 2020 to 12 August 2020.

We are proposing a number of refinements to the design of the project following feedback received from earlier consultations, discussions with stakeholders, ongoing design development and new technical data.

They include:

  • minor changes to elements of the highways design
  • updated paths for walkers, cyclists and horse riders
  • proposals for redirecting and upgrading utilities
  • more detailed landscaping proposals
  • further developed ecological mitigation measures

Your feedback  is vital in shaping the scheme and will help us develop our application for our Development Consent Order (DCO).
